Installation Manual 2

Certification and Code Requirements

Ventilation Requirements
WARNING: The completed installation must:
- Make sure there is sufficient intake of fresh air for
combustion.
- Make sure the living space is completely isolated from
the combustion system of the refrigerator.
- Make sure there is complete and unrestricted ventilation of the flue exhaust which, in gas mode, can
produce carbon monoxide. The breathing of carbon
monoxide fumes can cause dizziness, nausea, or in
extreme cases, death.

This refrigerator is certified by CSA International as meeting the


latest edition of ANSI Z21.19 / CAN 1.4 standards for installation
in mobile homes or recreational vehicles.
The installation must obey these standards and this
Installation Manual for the NORCOLD limited warranty to be in
effect. Installation must conform with the following as
applicable:
In the United States and Canada:
- Local codes, or in the absence of local codes, the National
Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, the Natural Gas and
Propane installation Code, CSA B149.1, ANSI A119.2
Recreational Vehicles Code, and CSA Z240 RV Series,
Recreational Vehicles.
-

A manufactured home (mobile home) installation must


conform with the Manufactured Home Construction and
Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 [formerly the
Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety,
Title 24 (part 280), and the current CSA Z240.4, Gasequipped Recreational Vehicles and Mobile Housing.

- If an external power source is utilized, the appliance, when


installed, must be electrically grounded in accordance with
local codes or, in the absence of local codes, the National
Electrical code, and ANSI/NFPA 70, or the Canadian
Electrical Code, CSA C22.2. Parts 1 and 2.
All propane gas supply piping and fittings must obey local,
state, and national codes about type and size. These
components must also obey the current NFPA 501C section 24, and in Canada with the current CAN 1-6.10 Standard.

- Make sure the refrigerator is completely isolated from


its heat generating components through the correct
use of baffles and panel construction.
Certified installation needs one lower intake vent and one upper
exhaust vent. Install the upper exhaust vent either through the
roof or through the side wall of the vehicle exactly as written in
this manual. Any other installation method voids both the
certification and the factory warranty of the refrigerator.
The bottom of the opening for the lower intake vent, which is
also the service access door, must be even with or immediately
below the floor level. This allows any leaking propane gas to
escape to the outside and not to collect at floor level.
CSA International certification allows the refrigerator to have
zero (0) inch minimum clearance at the sides, rear, top, and
bottom. While there are no maximum clearances specified for
certification, the following maximum clearances are necessary
for correct refrigerator performance:
Bottom

0 inch min.

0 inch max.

Each Side

0 inch min

1/8 inch max.

Top

0 inch min.

1/4 inch max.

Rear

0 inch min.

1 inch max.

These clearances plus the lower and upper vents cause the
natural air draft that is necessary for good refrigeration. Cooler
air comes in through the lower intake vent, goes up around the
refrigerator coils where it removes the excess heat from the
refrigerator components, and goes out through the upper
exhaust vent. If this air flow is blocked or decreased, the
refrigerator will not cool correctly.
Each NORCOLD model is certified by CSA International for
correct ventilation. Install only the certified vents that are listed
in this manual.

the flue pipe, or any hot component that could damage the
insulation of the power cord.

Connect the 12 volt DC supply (model N400.3):


As the distance from the vehicle battery to the refrigerator
increases, the correct AWG wire size and fuse size also
increases. If the wire size is too small for the distance, a
voltage drop occurs. The voltage drop decreases the output of
the system heater and causes poor cooling performance.
1. Determine the min. wire size and the max. fuse size to use:

WARNING: If you use an incorrect wire size and/or fuse


size, electrical fire can result.
- Measure the distance from the vehicle battery to the
refrigerator:
- If the distance is 0 - 20 feet, use a minimum of 10 AWG
wire and a 30 amp max. fuse.
- If the distance is over 20 feet, use a minimum of 8 AWG
wire size and a 40 amp max. fuse.
- If the wire is larger than the min. size, use the correct fuse
per RVIA A119.2 standard or local codes.
The wire connections must be clean, tight and free of corrosion.
If any of these items are not correct:
- A voltage drop to the refrigerator will occur.

Installation Manual 7
